After sitting in office for over a year now, US President Donald Trump has officially confirmed that he will once again run for the same position come the 2020 election. Plus he has even named who his next campaign manager will be.

According to recent reports, President Trump has picked Brad Parscale as his campaign manager for the next election, who previously worked with his as his digital strategis in 2016.

Aiming for a second term.

Of course, Trump seeking re-election is no longer a surprise for observers who are probably aware that he has already filed the needed paperwork back on Inauguration Day. The announcement of Parscale has, so far, been seen by many as the biggest indication that, yes, the president is really serious about the idea of running again.

Shortly after his appointment, Parscale picked two other individuals to work with him, one being Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law.

An Independent report tells us that Parscale first worked with the Trump Organization in 2011 when his Giles-Parscale company was hired to create websites for the real estate firm. He was then one of the first persons contacted by Trump soon after formally announcing he was running for the country’s top position.

In 2016, Parscale was Trump’s digital media strategist and even supervised the online fundraising efforts. When he was interviewed by 60 Minutes, Parscale pointed out that social media has indeed played a big role in securing the position for Trump. He said:

“I understood early that Facebook was how Donald Trump was going to win. Twitter was how he talked to the people, but Facebook was going to be how he won.

“I think Donald Trump won, but I think Facebook was the method. It was the highway in which his car drove on.”

Parscale made millions!

In a TIME article, we learned that “Giles-Parscale received more than $90 million in compensation” for the presidential campaign.

Furthermore, the firm “received more than $3.9 million in payments from the Trump campaign in 2017” plus Parscale Strategy, his data strategy company, likewise received about $1.6 million while Parscale himself got over $15,500 as part of the payroll.

Parscale had no experience with politics whatsoever prior to working for Trump.
